interesting comparison

Actually the ILY being forced proves it was real and not fake. If there was no emotion behind it, no meaning, wouldn't he just say it like he did to Janine in his FAKE proposal? In both scenarios he's determined to get to his goal, with Janine he does it smoothly, putting on all his charms, and magnificent acting skills and gets what he wants (an access to the office). He's such a good acting manipulator he FORCED out of John a forgiveness for the Fall in TEH! (and if it was firced does it (1/2)

mean it was fake? Now here is another angle to do a meta…) anyway, Sherlock has been determined to get to the office so he fake proposed saying ILY to Janine, now wouldn’t he be more determined to save Molly? Wouldn’t saying fake ILY be as easy and smoothly done as it was for Janine’s sake? Yet, he struggles, it’s difficult, he can’t say it to her (one, because she’ll know it’s fake, but) because it’s not fake at all, ‘i can’t say it to you because it’s true, it’s always been true’ (2/3)

It goes both ways for Sherlock and Molly. Saying it to each other under those circumstances is hard, very hard. It’s done under duress and force and it’s still so hard BECAUSE it’s true. For both of them. Just a thought I had when I saw a comment on Sherlock’s ILY being said only to Molly, and recalling he said it to Janine as well ('cause I’m canon Nazi ;)). But comparing those two scenes shows how real Sherlolly ILYs are (3/3) :)

Why Ochako is Actually a Complex Character


 So leggo.

 Now I won’t go into overall details about her because I already did that in this post that you can read right here, which I essentially discussed how she’s actually an amazing WSJ heroine and whoever voted her the worst should put their heads in sand because they don’t deserve to see the rest of the world (I kid I kid, promise!).

 Rather, I wanted to challenge the viewpoints people have of her and really argue on the fact that Ochako Uraraka is actually more of a complex character than we give her credit for. Most often than not, the fandom looks towards Katsuki or Izuku or even Todoroki and they build them up and go on and on about their complexity in the series. Hell, those three are my friend’s favorite characters and they are fan favorites for a multitude of reasons that they deserve. I myself have made numerous posts about Katsuki since we are given such complex views of him as well as the others in the series. They are the main focus in the story and their growth has been some of the best we’ve ever seen in a series.

 However, characters iike Ochako, who actually does have a lot of complexity and dimensionality, get lost in their wake and I really want to talk about that.

 Most often than not, when we see Ochako, we see this bubbly smiling girl who has such a wonderful and positive attitude that sometimes comes off ditzy. One glance at her and the words that come to mind are cute, adorable, fluffy, etc because that is the type of character that she mostly is. She is the female support of Izuku and the way she contributes to the story is with her adorable attitude that lightens up the mood in certain situations like the Ground Zero fight and even the room competition (did you see how cute she was with Iida’s glasses!?).

 Yet, what bothers me and possibly other really hardcore fans of her is that she isn’t just this bubbly character that smiles on the side but she does have complex issues that really makes her character more interesting in comparison to other characters.

 I mean for starters, this girl is the QUEEN of keeping her emotions from people and really suppressing them in most situations and not letting them get in the way of what she wants to get done.

 For example, the first real example of this is when she lost to her fight with Katsuki.

Now let’s remember situational factors going into this: we just found out her true goals into going to heroics (which was said in a much more serious tone than we had ever seen from her before)

we found out she was incredibly nervous to be facing Katsuki (and again WAS SUPPRESSING HER EMOTIONS)

we saw her rejecting Izuku’s help (as well as her little speech about feeling ashamed)


 So seeing her crying when she’s speaking to her family isn’t just some small defeated thing but it really gives us so much insight in her character and who she is as a person. We finally see how truly hard she is on herself and the perfectionist personality that she usually keeps hidden from others. You can even see by her facial expression when Izuku left that she put on a face for him to not let him get more worried then he already was. 

 And then don’t even get me started with her attitude during the Hero License Exam because oh my gosh, that was so powerful from her.

 From that, we first see her being so strategic af:

Then we get this amazing speech from Izuku about her and how he could have told the difference between her and Kemi (notice the plan part!)

Of course her being a BA here cuz eh why not, she’s really grown from her training


I just

There are so many moments of Ochako that I missed that would have proved my point even further than this but these moments here showcase how complex and really interesting Ochako is as a character.

 The bubbly personality that we see from her is only a piece of the whole picture and you could even argue that she’s so good at suppressing her emotions that it’s the personality she chooses to portray to others to keep her other emotions away from people because she doesn’t want to burden others. I personally don’t know if that’s true at all and maybe it is, maybe it isn’t but the fact is that she isn’t just some character that sits on the side and looks cute and adorable. There are so elements about her that makes her different and the fight she had with Katsuki really changed her as well as her inspiration from Izuku. She took both of those interactions with those characters and used them to better herself and it’s just SO POWERFUL. Not many shounen female heroines do that so it’s so refreshing to have Ochako be the way she is.

 Overall, as obvious as it must be, Ochako is one of my favorite characters and I’m so excited to see the growth she’s going to have more in the series. Her feelings for Izuku got cut off during the exam so that’s an arc we need to get from her and I know I want to see Ochako kicking Katsuki’s ass and actually winning to show how much she’s grown from the beginning. I have so much hope that Horikoshi has so many plans for her character and I’m so excited to see what he has in store for her and how he will continue to build upon her.

 Regardless, Happy Birthday Ochako!

 TLDR: Ochako is a very complex character and I wish more people celebrated that.

anonymous asked:

Hey i was wondering if you had any thoughts on the whole Icarus' pride/fall analogy for fahc Gavin that seems to have gone around a bit? If you feel like it of course!

Oh Ramsey’s perfect little frontman, all polished shine and pearly whites, mouth dripping charm like poison, like promise. How fitting to dress him up in ancient fables, a cautionary tale that has stood the test of time, how apt to deem him doomed from the start.

Is it any surprise that the people can’t stop talking about about him? Can they really be blamed when he goads them into it? When he wears vanity like the finest cloak, teases rumours out of thin air, when he seemingly lives to be in the limelight no matter the cost.

They’ve named him Icarus, like hubris. Like ill-fated glory hound. Like pretty fool with his head in the clouds. Like the fatal fall is inevitable and he has already lost. It’s funny how no one ever talks about the fact that Icarus was running, hurled into the sky to escape the fickle fancies of a cruel king, less human trying to play god than prisoner willing to risk everything for one more day in the sun. Child still naive enough to believe his father could never steer him wrong.

They call him Icarus, and it fits.

At birth he was named Gavin and as a child he’d have given anything to fly. A tyrant needs no crown and cruelty has never been limited to kings; Gavin outgrew blind faith years ago and since that day he has been running. It’s made him cautious, most would never know it now but he has always been calculated where it counted, has never needed another to build his escape route.

He’s as skittish and distrustful as an alley cat, as anyone who has ever been powerless, who is determined never to be again. He investigates every outcome, he does his math twice, and though many laugh when he sets his sights on America Gavin has always known exactly how perilous his wings are. By the time he arrives he has been reborn; all that swanky blasé confidence didn’t come naturally, was built piece by piece, fragile feather by fragile feather, stitched together with fear and need and the hardened resolve of someone who has run out of options.

They say Icarus, like hubris. Like there is any pride in desperation. Like ambition is the enemy, and chasing the brightest, purest thing you’ve ever seen is arrogant. Like that first winged boy wasn’t absolutely aware of what he was doing, like he didn’t aim upwards on purpose, didn’t swear that after a lifetime in the dark he was going to kiss the sun whether it killed him or not. Salvation or bust.

In Los Santos he is golden. Ramsey’s boy, untouchable boy, brilliant, brutal, menace. He is vital, important, he is vicious, he is streaking towards the sun blazing so brightly no one can look away, burning up right before their eyes. Gavin is higher than he’s ever been but he can’t stop now, not when death is coming from above and below and behind, not when everyone knows it’s better to go out on top. Better to choose it, to taunt it, to die laughing with the sun on your face.

He knows what the people call him, knows what they all expect, and can’t quite stop himself from laughing at them; no one ever seems to talk about the fact that Icarus didn’t die in the fall. It was neither height nor folly that that got him in the end; Icarus drowned. Blinded by hope and dropped into an environment he had no way to prepare for, dragged down with no way to help himself and no one around to save him.

For all Gavin’s many faults, real and affected alike, no one can say he is alone, not anymore. Not after he built himself a safety net out of hard eyes and loaded guns, leather jackets and bared teeth, weaving desperate affection and steadfast protection so deeply into the most ruthless crew he’d ever met that they’d drain the entire ocean before they’d let him sink.

They call him Icarus, and it fits, but they are missing half the story. Gavin built his own wings, omitting wax in favour of blood and bone, coated them in bullet casings and gold leaf so they’d catch the sunlight and blind any who tried to look too closely. Who can tell, then, if he is climbing or falling? Who can see clearly enough to know when the ocean is rushing up to greet him? Gavin who is always two steps ahead, who could talk a fish out of water, could charm gravity, who has never feared the fall. Gavin who dreamed of flying, who spent his whole life learning how to swim.

Half-formed thought of the day

A big theme in news articles and commentary lately is manufacturing jobs, crisis of labor, crisis of automation, etc, heavily focused on white working-class men. Often with the obligatory mentions of Luddites, carriage-makers and the automobile, etc etc pick prior examples as you please. But here’s a dot I’m not seeing connected:

Modern feminism arose out of a crisis of automation.

Feminism isn’t just the incorporation of women into longstanding ideals of citizenship and equality, although that’s important. Feminism is what happens when the huge amounts of domestic labor that need to get done for society to function–and that women as a class-like entity have been responsible for in most agricultural societies–can be done with machines in a fraction of the time. In the time it takes to get from the invention of the sewing machine to the mass adoption of the microwave, half the labor force goes from a back-breaking full-time job to chronic underemployment. 

(The other big structural pillar that people underestimate is safe, controlled reproduction. Its importance as a personal right is feminist dogma now, but IMO that misses just how much the insoluble problems of constant pregnancy and death in childbirth shackled the entire structure of society. Like, the reason there’s still so much conflict over this is that we’ve basically solved one of the eternal problems of the human condition and are still figuring out what the fuck to do with our success. But that’s a topic for another time.)

Mind you, I’m not saying “stop thinking of the white working-class men when you could be talking about women!” Just that it’s a potentially interesting point of comparison that’s being overlooked. And I’m definitely not saying it’s a one-to-one comparison, for probably some of the same reasons it’s being overlooked: underemployment plays out differently with unpaid labor that’s generally organized through household units instead of a more liquid job market. Or rather, supplemented by a job market for domestic labor, which is also heavily female and goes through its own series of upheavals.

Anyway. I don’t have enough knowledge of the relevant fields to develop this much further. But I thought I’d toss it out there in case somebody does, or just wants to cc it to the thinkpiece writers at the Atlantic.

I just think Yousef’s behaviour in the latest Hey Briskeby video is incredibly interesting in comparison to previous videos and especially in relation to today’s clip.

First off, Yousef is super quiet. He not only doesn’t talk much but he also speaks very lowly when he does. He sits at the very end of the couch instead of front and centre like before. There is definitely some isolation going on there (much like someone else we know).

Then, he seems absent-minded and keeps staring at his phone *cough* definitely refreshing Sana’s facebook page and staring at the little unfriended friend symbol as well as reading through their old texts *cough*.

And most importantly, in the bit where Adam talks for quite some time and everybody is looking at him, Yousef is turned towards Adam too but his gaze isn’t directed at Adam, he’s focussing on something to their right and as we know from the clip this is where Sana is.

Bottom line, what I’m trying to tell you is that Yousef Acar is sad because Sana Bakkoush won’t even look at him anymore and that affects him enough that he seems heartbroken, okay, thank you for your time.

This is my random thoughts of the first part of “Requiem”. (Because Karai was there and last part was too hard for me to talk now.) You know I’m Karai, Leorai fan. I wanted to talk about them in that part. (And I’m not native speaker, sorry for my odd English)

So finally Stockman finished making perfect mutagen and Shredder took in that.

The new mutagen made Shredder emotionless so that he could kill even Karai.I don’t want to say that, but he loved Karai in his way, and he decided to cut it for good to defeat Splinter… Now he became a heartless killer machine.

While it was happening, Splinter told Leo that “heart” was important for the leader. It was an interesting comparison.

not that I’m qualified to criticize popular writing tips or anything, but I’m sick of ppl hating on adverbs

stop reducing adverbs to just “a word that probably ends with -ly”. an adverb is a word or phrase that describes adjectives, verbs, and other adverbs. adverbs answer the questions how, when, where, and why. it doesn’t just describe “how”!!


“Tomorrow,” she beamed proudly, twirling in her new dress. “I’ll be travelling there to see the circus!”

look at all those adverbs!!!!

  • “tomorrow” - adv, when is she travelling?
  • “proudly”, “twirling in her new dress” - adv and adv phrase, how is she beaming?
  • “there” - adv, where is she travelling?
  • “to see the circus” - adv phrase, why is she travelling?
I cannot stand ppl who say “don’t use adverbs all the time!!” and then list eight examples which all have adverb phrases. I understand not a lot of ppl bother, or even know how to diagram a sentence, but I promise you…. those are adverbs. you’re still using adverbs!!!

Uncles and Nunkies

Nunkie Jamie

A small blond boy in homespun breeks leaned on Jamie’s knee, staring up at me in wonder. 

“Who’s that, Nunkie?” he asked in a loud whisper. “That’s your great-auntie Claire,” Jamie said gravely. “Ye’ll have heard about her, I expect?” 

“Oh, aye,” the little boy said, nodding madly. “Is she as old as Grannie?” 

“Even older,” Jamie said, nodding back solemnly. The lad gawked up at me for a moment, then turned back to Jamie, face screwed up in scorn. 

“Get on wi’ ye, Nunkie! She doesna look anything like as old as Grannie! Why, there’s scarce a bit o’ silver in her hair!” 

“Thank you, child,” I said, beaming at him. 

“Are ye sure that’s our great-auntie Claire?” the boy went on, looking doubtfully at me. “Mam says Great-Auntie Claire was maybe a witch, but this lady doesna look much like it. She hasna got a single wart on her nose that I can see!” 

“Thanks,” I said again, a little more dryly. “And what’s your name?” 

He turned suddenly shy at being thus directly addressed, and buried his head in Jamie’s sleeve, refusing to speak. 

“This is Angus Walter Edwin Murray Carmichael,” Jamie answered for him, ruffling the silky blond hair. “Maggie’s eldest son, and most commonly known as Wally.” 

We call him Snot-rag,” a small red-haired girl standing by my knee informed me. “ ’Cause his neb is always clotted wi’ gook.” 

Angus Walter jerked his face out of his uncle’s shirt and glared at his female relation, his features beet-red with fury. 

“Is not!” he shouted. “Take it back!” Not waiting to see whether she would or not, he flung himself at her, fists clenched, but was jerked off his feet by his great-uncle’s hand, attached to his collar. 

“Ye dinna hit girls,” Jamie informed him firmly. “It’s not manly.” 

“But she said I was snotty!” Angus Walter wailed. “I must hit her!” 

“And it’s no verra civil to pass remarks about someone’s personal appearance, Mistress Abigail,” Jamie said severely to the little girl. “Ye should apologize to your cousin.” 

“Well, but he is…” Abigail persisted, but then caught Jamie’s stern eyes and dropped her own, flushing scarlet. “Sorry, Wally,” she murmured. 

Wally seemed at first indisposed to consider this adequate compensation for the insult he had suffered, but was at last prevailed upon to cease trying to hit his cousin by his uncle promising him a story. 

“Tell the one about the kelpie and the horseman!” my red-haired acquaintance exclaimed, pushing forward to be in on it. 

“No, the one about the Devil’s chess game!” chimed in one of the other children. Jamie seemed to be a sort of magnet for them; two boys were plucking at his coverlet, while a tiny brown-haired girl had climbed up onto the sofa back by his head, and begun intently plaiting strands of his hair. 

“Pretty, Nunkie,” she murmured, taking no part in the hail of suggestions. 

“It’s Wally’s story,” Jamie said firmly, quelling the incipient riot with a gesture. “He can choose as he likes.” He drew a clean handkerchief out from under the pillow and held it to Wally’s nose, which was in fact rather unsightly. 

“Blow,” he said in an undertone, and then, louder, “and then tell me which you’ll have, Wally.” 

Wally snuffled obligingly, then said, “St. Bride and the geese, please, Nunkie.” 

Jamie’s eyes sought me, resting on my face with a thoughtful expression.

Uncle Ian

All of the children were clustered round Young Ian, staring and asking so many questions that they collided with one another, and pushed and shoved, arguing as to who asked what and who should be answered first. 

The children had paid no attention to the elder Ian’s remark. They already knew Grandda was dying, and the fact was of no interest by comparison with the fact of their fascinating new uncle. A tiny girl with her hair in stubby plaits sat in Young Ian’s lap, tracing the lines of his tattoos with her fingers, now and then sticking one inadvertently in his mouth as he smiled and made hesitant answers to his inquisitive nieces and nephews.


A while back I had the opportunity to explore the completely abandoned Forest Haven asylum in Maryland! It was possibly the coolest experience I’ve had so far in 2017. For those wondering, here’s a video that filmmaker Dan Bell made of the place.

While inside, I found and took a bunch of documents (there was a lot, they were just strewn all over the place) detailing the daily lives of some of the staff members and really wanted to make some sort of visual journalism art piece out of it. Decided to do some messy drawings of the place using only a bottle dropper and overlay scans of some papers I found inside for an interesting comparison. Might be interesting to turn into a book later on if I ever get the time!

So I’m thinking of starting a new series where I compare different LIW adaptations of the same source material and look at what works and what doesn’t and why. Some of these series are still in progress, but others have finished, and so I can get to writing those if people seem interested.

Potential comparisons:

Much Ado About Nothing (Nothing Much To Do, Much Ado About a Webseries, and A Bit Much)

Anne of Green Gables (Green Gables Fables and Project Green Gables)

Emma (Emma Approved and The Emma Agenda)

Northanger Abbey (Northbound and The Cate Morland Chronicles)

Little Women (The March Family Letters and The Attic)

And several others that also have several adaptations but I’ve either only seen one of them or haven’t seen any. Give me recommendations so I can add to this list!

(A Noragami Headcanon) Yato and Yaboku and...


I started binge-watching and binge-reading the anime and manga, and now I’m obsessed with Noragami again. This isn’t so much a theory but more like a headcanon of mine to support the most popular theory in the Noragami fandom (so forgive me if it’s been said already). 

You know what Yato’s name reminds me of?

A shinki’s name, bestowed upon one by their master.

In the same way, the same character is read differently (either by its Japanese or Chinese reading), but still pertains to the same individual, his name, with the exact same characters, can be read as Yato or Yaboku.

In the same way one reading turns a shinki into a weapon, ‘Yaboku’ was his identity as Father’s weapon, while ‘Yato’, the name Sakura reads his name as, is the name he uses to live as a person. 

Anyway, the point I’m getting at should this interesting comparison be completed is that Yato, like other shinki, has (I wouldn’t call it a true name, since I believe ‘Yukine’ for example is a true name in the same way ‘Hiyori’ is) a former name from before he died.

If that’s the case, it adds a certain dimension to Yato’s relationship with his Father. He’s bound to him in the same way a shinki is bound to his master (and he doesn’t even know it). It would be interesting if that were the case since Shinki are Humans bound to Gods, but what would you call a God bound to a Human? 

Anyway, I read an interesting theory about how the chapter ‘A Passing Resemblance’ could refer to Iki-nii’s resemblance to Hiyori (or even to Yato) since it was the chapter he was introduced in, but also how the situation with Yukine then, with him and Yato being separated from Hiyori, may reflect the situation from when he was alive (him having been separated from his sister and mother), and may be a factor in the resurgence of his memories. 

Considering double meanings, what if ‘A God’s Greatest Secret’ does not only refer to a shinki’s former name, but in the context of the story, could also refer to a specific God’s secret (so secret that it’s unknown even to himself), the secret being Yato’s former name.

If a shinki turns into an akayashi after hearing their former name, I wonder what the effect will be on Yato when he hears Tsukiyomi it. 

Interesting comparison/parallel : 

Daryl sacrifices his sole purpose of erasing the Saviours from the earth in the exact moment he learns about Carol.The one thing he was determined to do declines totally in comparison to his need to protect Carol.

He tells Morgan “You gotta make that happen” (bring Ezekiel to fight)

Interesting enough,Morgan,in a mental pressure situation,makes it happen in the exact same way that Daryl wanted to avert from Carol.He tells her the truth and brings her into protection/revenge mode.

Daryl and Morgan are both in pressure situations. 

Daryls need to put Carol first wavers not one bit under pressure,very contrary to the reaction from Morgan.He “sacrifices” his philosophy and in a way Carol’s decision for solitude on the spot.

Daryl loves Carol. Clear as day.


From a distance of 418 million miles, NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft took an image of Jupiter February 12. It marked the first long-range target for the PolyCam instrument, which is a narrow-field, long-range camera onboard the spacecraft. Two images were combined to create the image, one showing detail on Jupiter and one at a much higher exposure to capture three of the planet’s largest moons. From left to right are Callisto, Io, and Ganymede.

In an interesting comparison between the spacecraft’s different cameras, the wide-angle, short-range NavCam took the same image immediately after the above one. Jupiter and its moons appear as white, pixelated shapes with no discernable detail.

Both images were taken during the mission’s search for Earth-Trojan asteroids, bodies of rock that orbit the sun in an orbit of similar length and shape to Earth’s.

OSIRIS-REx, which launched September 8, 2016, was 76 million miles away from Earth at the time the image was taken. The spacecraft will swing by Earth in September 2017 for a gravity assist before reaching the asteroid Bennu in mid-2018.

OSIRIS-REx’s position when it took its photograph of Jupiter is shown below. The positions of Earth, Bennu, and Jupiter is also shown, as are some key milestones in the pre-arrival phase of the mission.
